Daniel Craig really, really doesn’t like being asked if he likes his drink ‘shaken or stirred’, just FYI.

The 51-year-old recently revealed his upcoming stint as James Bondin next film No Time To Die – will be his last.

And it seems there is one thing he’s very excited to never, ever hear again when he gives up 007’s tux.

‘Whenever someone asks me, “Would you like it shaken or stirred?” I feel like punching him in the face,’ he reportedly said.


‘You go into a bar for one drink and you are served three,’ he continued. ‘Besides, I am not really into martinis. I prefer beer.’

Well, Daniel might want to have a word with Bond author Ian Fleming, as the spy ordered 34 martinis in the books…

The Layer Cake actor also isn’t that keen on violence and guns, proving he actually doesn’t have that much in common with the spy…

‘You might find this amusing, but I’m scared of guns,’ he added to the Mirror. ‘Seriously, I once saw a gunshot wound up close. It was horrible.

‘And in a scene where I had to climb a 60-metre crane I overcame a paralysing fear of heights.’

No Time To Die is Daniel’s last outing as James Bond

Daniel recently confirmed that, after a lot of speculation, No Time To Die would be his last outing as James Bond.

The dad-of-two – who is the longest reigning actor in the role – told German publication he is stepping down, explaining: ‘Yes – in the future someone else has to do it.’

Cue months of speculation over who will be filling his shoes – with Idris Elba, Richard Madden and Lashana Lynch just some of the names tipped for the role.

And Rachel Weisz’s husband vowed he is cutting ties for good, hitting back at claims he wants to get into the director’s chair for the next film.

‘For God’s sake, no. I want to come home, eat something and then go to bed,’ he said.

‘If you’re a director, then at night you’re still with the producers, screenwriters, on the phone. And then after two hours of sleep, you have to go back up to the set. No thanks.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Daniel’s reps for a comment.

No Time To Die is released in cinemas on 2 April, 2020.
